Sometimes, creativity strikes me in the morning. Usually I respond by beating it over the head with a good dose of "What are you thinking? You can't wear that in public!" But sometimes I give it a chance, and this was one of those times. What to do with the lovely Maryam Tank? It's so pretty, but it's a little big on me, and it's way too early for fall sweater layering season. How to solve this problem...

Why, layer it between a t-shirt and a skirt and pretend the whole thing is a dress, of course!

Maryam Tank, Anthropologie
UO Skirt
Softwalk shoes

Overall I was really happy with this outfit and received quite a few compliments on my "skirt" or my "dress." You know what this means, folks? Yep, I tricked people into thinking I knew how to get dressed. I'm a sneaky scientist, oh yes I am.


  1. Oh, I love it! Very creative and super cute.

  2. Haha, very clever. I had to google the Maryam Tank to see just what you did it works so well.

  3. Me too ^^ I didn't know at all which one was the part that was not actually skirt/dress ;-)

  4. I looove this look! Your creativity definitely paid off!
